Subject: Who ruined this film?
A good movie, with Dick Powell at his hard-boiled best (the "new" Dick
Powell, of course). But what MORON ruined a classic with the pan & scan
(& zoom, and even an occasional rotation, no less)? Did he/she/it think
that he/she/it was actually improving the work of the cinematographer?
Besides the annoying extraneous motion (and I don't mean just the sudden
vertical pans; how did those get in there?), it also ruins the composition
(and Hollywood cinematographers of the time were typically masters of
dynamic composition).

Memo to "Futuristfood": No, idiot, that's not the movie's "style" -- it's
due to another idiot playing with a video toy. Watch a few hundred other
movies of the era and you'll realize that. (Or just observe how the
"Mystery" logo moves around -- i.e., the atrocity was committed after it
left their hands.)

Could someone please upload an unadulterated version? PLEASE?
